Default Daniel Hudson

I had not heard anything about this kid until recently with this ridiculous streak he is on allowing 0 earned runs in 5 out of his last 6 starts.

What did he project out of College when we drafted him?
Does anyone having scouting reports, what does he feature?
Has anyone seen him?

What jumps out me the most is the 142/25 K/BB ratio. Disgusting.

So was I asleep on Hudson or was he suppose to be a top prospect?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Well this was a good start http://futuresox.com/frontpage/?p=876 from the thread down the page.

Thanks.

Saturday the Sox need a spot starter. DJ Carrasco pitched well last nite for 4 innings. Will it be him again? or Torres again? or possibly Hudson? But I guess that he would have only 3 days rest...so Torres? Hudson has to be under consideration for a sept callup if they need a starter,maybe?

Hudson has been fairly dominant in all 3 of his minor league stops this season. From what I hear he has 4 pitches and uses them well. I can see him getting a cup of coffee in September, but I don't see much use in throwing him into a spot start right now. Torres looked just fine in his start.

Should the Sox consider moving him up from AA to AAA Charlotte now?

Didn't he just recently get called up to AA? No reason to move him to AAA - there is good competition at AA.

Kid started the season in Kannapolis. I don't think there is so urgent a need anywhere int he system to rush him further. Let him finish the year at AA, IMO... pitch in the playoffs, finish on a high note.

I doubt Hudson would be called up to pitch on 3 days rest.

Huddy has been flat out dominant in AA. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes to AAA at some point to finish out the season. He might be the Sox 5th starter at some point next year.

Thanks for clarifying. He's had such good numbers that I was thinking he had been at AA for a longer period.

I guess we'll see him in spring training.
